1 Making Behavior Tracking Fun and Simple for Students with Mild to Severe Disabilities Kerry Dyslin and Heather Thornton Weese

2 RESEARCH on BEHAVIOR TRACKING and MONITORING Aaron and Bostow (1978) introduced a contingent free-time based on academic productivity and on-task behavior for elementary school students in a special education class. Their results showed a substantial increase in the work the students accomplished correctly and the on-task behavior. Aaron, B.A., & Bostow, D.E. (1978). Indirect facilitation of on-task behavior produced by contingent free- time for academic productivity. Journal of Applied Behavioral Analysis, 1978, 11, 197 -

3 RESEARCH on BEHAVIOR TRACKING and MONITORING McComas, Thompson and Paone (2002) worked with elementary age students with autism who demonstrated high rates of problem behavior and low levels of task completion resulting in either no consequence or a break from the tasks. Problem behaviors were drastically reduced when they resulted in a temporary break from the task. Task completion drastically increased using task completion resulted in a break using preferred activities McComas, J.J., Thompson, A.L., & Paone, D. (2002). Concurrent reinforcement schedules: behavior change and maintenance without extension. Journal of Applied Behavioral Analysis. 2002, 35,

4 RESEARCH on BEHAVIOR TRACKING and MONITORING Stern and Fowler (1988) studied two fifth grade students with high levels of disruptive and off-task behavior where problem behaviors quickly decreased using peer monitors and point earners. Stern, G.W., & Fowler, S.A. (1988). A comparison of two intervention roles: peer monitor and point earner. Journal of Applied Behavioral Analysis, 1988, 21,
